Text: Psalm 81: 8 – 10
As can be seen from our text, the Lord, after enjoining His people to ensure that they were free of idols, challenged them to open their mouths wide, guaranteeing that He will fill it. Opening of the mouth wide’ is a figurative expression referring to “doing those things that would create great room for the inflow of God’s blessings.” Though there are several mode of opening the mouth wide, this time we are looking at PRAYER.
Prayer is simply the act of communicating with God: speaking to God (giving) and hearing from God (receiving). While there are different types of prayer (like Supplication, Intercession, Praise, Worship, Adoration etc), we shall focus on SUPPLICATION which is the act of asking God for help (Matt.7:7,8).
TEXT: Genesis 3: 1-24; Romans 3:23
In the theme of study for this gathering titled, “THE GLORY DEPARTED, BUT THE GLORY RETURNED”, it will be shown from the above texts and other relevant Scriptures, (i) what man was originally at creation; (ii) what happened after creation; (iii) the consequences of what happened, till date; (iv) the remedy to the consequences.
Texts: Genesis 2:18-24; 35:1-7; Psalm 127:3-4; Proverbs 18:22; Ephesians 5:25-33
Today we want to remind ourselves that God has very good intentions for us all (Gen. 2:18-24). He wants us to be happy in marriage and to enjoy the bliss that goes with it (Gen. 2:18). He wants a strong cooperation between the husband and the wife to achieve the purpose of God (Gen. 18:24; Pr. 18:22; Mt. 19:6). There will be strength when the two come together in unity, with their offspring, to overcome their adversaries (Dt. 32:30; Isa. 8:18). He gave the order of their behavior so that the union which He established will prosper.
Marriage is meant to be a complimentary union of one man and one woman; the partners should not isolate one another (Dt. 32:30; Eccl. 4:11). To eliminate the loneliness, God provided a help that is suitable in such situations. Note that the word help in this context means “to give or provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or satisfy a need; to contribute strength or means to ; to render assistance or to cooperate effectively with; to aid; to assist: to make easier or less difficult; to contribute to; to facilitate”. The moment the woman (wife) neglects this aspect of this divinely-ordained institution, then the life or health of that marriage and indeed, of that man (husband), begins to take a plunge or a nosedive (Pr. 18:22; 14:1). When the man (the husband) is denied the joys or the fruits of the marriage, then the purpose of the marriage is defeated and his life usually begins a downward or a negative spiral (Eph. 5:22-24). When he is relegated to the background because he is no more what he used to be physically, financially or otherwise, then that union will also begin to deteriorate (Rom. 7:2).
